Attendance improvement strategies that may be implemented to promote and improve attendance at the school should be clearly documented as part of the school’s policy and procedural information.
These strategies can occur at a whole school level, where principles, practices and strategies are used to promote consistent and regular attendance.
Schools may also implement individualised strategies in response to an individual student’s needs. This may lead to attendance improvement planning.
Attendance improvement planning is a collaborative process whereby issues relating to a student’s inability to attend are identified and strategies to increase attendance are determined. An attendance improvement plan is the documented outcome of the planning process.
